the box is fabricated out of plastic and the edges were rounded and cut to fit the front of the car. The grey stuff is insulation that is for pipes to keep the intake temps down. the shiny tape is heat reflective tape

What filter did you use?
Do you still have enough to run it straight to the TB, or is it shorter then that now? That is one way to get around the flexing.

MAF screen in?

The N10 is nice, but some of that is engine roar you're hearing too, the pitch is like that of an aftermarket muffler (if not lower) but it'* not nearly as loud....

I dont think that the accrodian tube is a big deal. I didnt want to break something with the engine flex, and the box was too heavy to mount solid to the TB and pipe
